One common emotion that will always remain universal is the feeling of love. From the love of a mother for her child to the passion of one lover to another, the emotion is certainly a powerful one. It is perhaps because of this reason that many art lovers seek out this type of art when making growing their collection.
Given this feeling, it is no wonder that this emotion often plays the muse for many famous works of art. It has been used throughout history in many different forms. From canvas to sculpture, the message of love through art is endless.
Even the artists are aware of the impact of love on their ability to create magnificent art. They use life experience as a means to express how love has impacted them in their personal lives and hope to trigger a similar feeling or memory from the viewer.
It is a beautiful incident when an artist is capable of capturing the hearts of their viewers, by channeling a fond memory or deep emotion form their viewer. This feeling is what art is made of and the main reason people seek out this kind of work.
Although there are many quotes from artists throughout history about the effects of love on their art, this particular one is ceratinly at the top of my list:
“I want to touch people with my art. I want them to say ‘he feels deeply, he feels tenderly.'” Vincent Van Gogh
